make yourself at home when you visit
Rochester Covenant Church.
We look forward to getting to know you!
Our "main event" is Sunday worship at 10:30 a.m.
Here are some suggestions to help with your first visit.
Rochester Covenant Church
4950 31st Ave NW
Rochester, MN 55901
(behind North Wal-Mart)
Before worship, come 10-15 minutes early for coffee and conversation in the Foyer. To your left is our Welcome Center; ask about nursery/toddler check-in and other questions here. All other kids start in worship, with Kids' Church (ages 4-3rd grade) dismissed twice a month during the message.
Parking is easy. We have one main lot in front of the church, with reserved spaces for guests, new moms and handicapped folks on the west side of our parking lot. Both levels of our church are handicapped accessible.
What to Wear
Come as you are! Dress ranges from shorts, jeans and short-sleeved shirts, to dresses and coats-and-ties. But if you want to "blend in" as a newcomer, dressing "business casual" is probably a good way to go.
Believing generations belong together to build faith, we offer interactive Kids' Messages each Sunday during worship, with resources to help kids track with the morning's message. We also offer RCC Kids classes each Sunday at 9:15 a.m., and a Kids & Families Supper/Bible time each Wednesday eve in homes.
We offer classes for children, youth and adults at 9:15 each Sunday morning. Most classes meet on the lower level, with nursery/toddler care on the main level, east hallway. For more info, stop at the Welcome Center in the main foyer.
Five generations worship together each Sunday, so you'll find music and worship expressions ranging from ancient to modern, formal and informal. Mostly, we invite people to actively participate in worship, since it's about giving God honor and praise (and not us).
Because we so value God's Word as our authority and guide for what we believe and how we live, we base our teaching on the Bible, with an eye to putting our faith into practice in everyday life. While our style is mostly presentation-based, we also use video/visuals, personal faith stories, interviews, or discussion to reinforce the message of the day. ,
